Description

In Chili Dawgs Always Bark at Night, Lewis Grizzard once again confirms his reputation as the "William Faulkner of just plain folks" using colorful storytelling to tackle such Grizzardian subjects as: Fashion: "Don't wear anything that features a picture of a pelican, a pink flamingo, or a beer can." The Future: "I'm predicting the world isn't going to come to an end anytime soon. There's too much unresolved, like whether or not Elvis is still alive, Jimmy Swaggart can stay on television, and if there will be another Rambo sequel." Dating: "Any single white female who has to resort to taking out an ad to find a boyfriend would take a SWM who's into yodeling, Hustler magazine, Ripple, and robbing convenience stores." People Who Cheat in the 12-Items-or-Less Lane: "Previously, I have dog-cussed these people and put curses on them, like, 'May your children grow up to be liberal Democrats.' I'm not going to be that mean-spirited anymore. What I'm going to do is go to the vegetable bin, grab a large cucumber, and beat them about the head and shoulders with it." Lewis Grizzard offers his views on everything from politics, religion, sex, and golf to the largest condom heist in history, wittier and more outrageous than ever. Chili Dawgs Always Bark at Night shows why the South's most popular humorist continues to be America's most popular funny man.show more

Review quote

"He is to Dixie what Royko is to Chicago, Breslin to New York, Buchwald to Washington. He's among the hottest things down South since corn bread." --The Washington Post "He has an enviable grasp on the pith and marrow of life. He writes about the things people talk about." --Atlanta Journal-Constitution "It's worth having a collection of Grizzard's books on the shelf for their titles alone. They're better, though, off the shelf, because the inside are funnier than the covers." --The Daily Oklahoman "Lewis Grizzard thinks funny. And he writes funny in a very Southern way that appeals greatly to his fellow Southerners and to all of us Yankees with a born-again soft spot in our hearts for the land of grits and honey and Scarlett and Rhett." --San Diego Union "Grizzard is a natural-born storyteller with a deft hand for reducing everyday occurrences into uproarious nuggets of praise." --Orlando Sentinelshow more

Flap copy

Another of Lewis Grizzard's beloved essay collections is back in print again. In Chili Dawgs Always Bark at Night, author and comedian Grizzard once again confirms his reputation as the "William Faulkner of just plain folks" using colorful storytelling and his own wonderful brand of humor to tackle such Grizzardian subjects as religion, dining out, journalism, golf, dogs, people named Bubba, and teenagers. He pokes gentle fun at the arbiters of men's fashion, at those who put ads in the personal columns, the language of today's young people, the perils of skiing, the fate of dieters' lost pounds and the disappearance of the front porch. Chili Dawgs Always Bark at Night shows why the South's most popular humorist continues to be one of America's most popular funny men long after his death.show more
